I am obsessed with questioning the definitions of space through aural perceptions. Many of my works are to research through the broad idea of the aural space. They are ‘feature-specific’ rather than ‘site-specific’, so experiments would yield wide range of outcomes where people are exposed to the temporal spatial experience they normally do not recognize.
Car Décalé (Légèrement) / Because Shifted (Slightly) (CDL) is an experiential/phenomenological sound-performance/installation/method for redefining a space utilizing audio-feedback. CDL was purposely constructed in the simplest formula without specifics. Aesthetic aspects such as the material used for walls, ceiling, floors, columns, furniture, people, etc. serve as influential components. CDL also surfaces layers of “rooms” inside the “room.” It means that any hollow-shaped elements (both ends open or only one-side open) such as air-ducts, glasses, bottles, tubes, cans, etc. inside of the whole physical room, would emerge as smaller “rooms.” Then, the whole complex and temporary structure becomes my instrument that functions as the feedback chamber for my performance.
As CDL is a highly experiential/phenomenological work, it is not recommended just to check video or audio file(s) if you would have a chance to attend one. However, if you're curious, check this audio file, recorded by Daniel Neumann.
